My name is Joshua Griffis, and I recently scheduled my embolizations. I will be going to the HHT center at the Oregon Health and Science University in Portland. I will be in Portland between the 20th and the 24th for more testing and the proceedures.
As will most of us, finances are low . . . so I am looking for an alternative to staying in a hotel. My questions for you are . . .
1- Would staying in a hostle be an option - or would I need a private room to rest (I'll have to have multipule proceedures because of the contrast and radiation . . . and in order to do it all in one trip, the doc says I'll need to rest a few days between each proceedure).
2- Is anyone from that area aware of "real" discounts for OHSU patients??? (they have a list, but rooms are still nearly $100 per night).
3- Any ideas on discounted/free flights . . . the options I've seen are not available to me.
Thank you all for your time and assistance ;)
